Brace yourself for the cabaret show that has been described as Aussie Cirque du Soleil meets Ru Paul’s Drag Race, BRIEFS. This hilarious, unmissable circus sensation from Briefs Factory comes to the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre from 17 –20 February for Auckland Pride!

An all-male, sharp shooting cabaret, BRIEFS is a madcap circus safari of extravagant “boylesque” with valiant aerial acrobatics, irreverent interludes, ferocious fanfares and show-stopping drag artistes. Get an eye-bogglingly close up view from cabaret table seating on the mighty ASB Theatre stage, with a pop-up bar to keep the bubbles flowing.

Six Aussies and one New Yorker mix up a riotous blend of drag, glamour and athleticism, infused with dancing, tumbling, juggling, acro-balancing, trapeze, hula hooping, lip-syncing, sequins, feathers and frocks.

BRIEFS is led by the brazen beauty Shivannah (Fez Faanana, New Zealand-born Samoan) with a feline prowess. Captain Kidd, the ripped god of bathing, crowned the 2011 Las Vegas King of Burlesque, splashes and sprays the audience from his bird bath, while the ferocious Dallas Dellaforce brings dynamic drag to a new level as Australia’s queen of avant-garde performance art. Mesmerising contortionist, hand balancer and aerial hoop expert Thomas Worrell will literally tie himself in knots for you; New York City’s sexiest acrobatic burlesque legend Evil Hate Monkey escaped the zoo to dazzle with his award winning banana ballet; and fresh-faced circus brats Lachy Shelley (from Circa Zoo and Flipside) and Louis Biggs (from Fruit Fly Circus) will melt hearts and have the audience gagging for more.
